Brad Casemore doesn’t buy the conspiracy theory that says the Open Networking Foundation (ONF) Technical Advisory Group (TAG) is a vehicle for a vendor (read Cisco) coup. Here’s why.
So, we have the ONF, and it’s unlike the IETF and the IEEE in more ways than one. While not a standards body – the ONF describes itself as a “non-profit consortium dedicated to the transformation of networking through the development and standardization of a unique architecture called Software-Defined Networking (SDN)” – there’s no question that the ONF wants to ensure that it defines and delivers SDN according to its own rules And at its own pace, too, not tied to the product-release schedules of networking vendors.
